It's the 144th year of the Rock Island County Fair, which is getting underway

Guests can expect all their favorite foods and rides plus this year there will be a new Ferris wheel, which is one of the tallest traveling Ferris wheels in the U.S.
     
There will also be events like trailer races and bull riding but fair officials say they decided to move the event to June this year so it wouldn't conflict with a national cattle competition.

"It's the kick off to summer if you will and we traditionally had some blazing hot weather in July so we view this as an opportunity to try," Rock Island County Fair Board's Bill McKinley said.

McKinley says they're always watching the weather, making sure it's safe for everyone.
